This anime keeps knocking it out of the park for me! This season has been exciting, emotional, and just fantastic. I’m always impatient for the next episode! I loved being able to see the scene when Todoroki beats Izuku again. Goose bumps every time! I can’t get over how well done the animation and sound effects are. It’s small things like this that make a great anime.
It was difficult to watch Izuku battle with himself emotionally after the match. I didn’t expect that he would have permanently damaged one of his hands. That’s going to be something that will always make him unique. The nurse was a little harsh with him but I was glad to see All Might still encouraging him and not letting him beat himself up too much. He did do something awesome when he saved Todoroki.
I was anxious to see the exchange between Todoroki and his dad. Thankfully, I wasn’t disappointed! I was hoping he would tell him off and he certainly did. I’m very excited to see how Todoroki’s story line unfolds. He’s a very interesting character to me and he’s one of my favorites. His quirk is just phenomenal. At first, I didn’t stop to think just how much power he could possess with fire and ice until that fight. We all know how hot and cold air meeting can dramatically affect the weather. All Might even used Todoroki as an example as to what would happen if he had been given the quirk instead of Izuku. He would have been the most powerful super hero and unstoppable. It moved me to know that All Might had been quirkless once too, just like Izuku!
The fight between Kirishima and Bakugo was fun to watch. I like both those characters so I was kind of rooting for both of them, even though Bakugo is still my favorite. I just have a thing for hot tempers. LOL Anyway, in this episode we got to see just how smart Bakugo actually is when it comes to fighting. He studied Kirishima’s weakness and didn’t hesitate to exploit it. The fight with Tokoyami was even more impressive. Bakugo is proving to be that he’s more than just a hot temper and brawn. He studies his opponents so he knows how to defeat them. This is an awesome talent he already has that will definitely be beneficial to his career as a hero.
I don’t have too much to say about the other fights. They didn’t really give me much of an impression but I was okay with that. It didn’t make the anime boring or anything. The fights were fun to watch in the moment but they didn’t make me cheer.
I admit I was not prepared for the drama that was unfolding with Ida and his family. Of course, eventually I knew some serious fights and episodes would be in the future. Now it looks like we’re starting to transition into a new arc and it’s going to be a dark one. I’m curious to know what that’s going to be like and how much character development we’ll get to see.
The fight we get to see in the next episode is going to be epic! Todoroki verses Bakugo? What a match up! It’ll be interesting to see how this fight plays out. I have a feeling Todoroki might use more of his ice half with Bakugo. I’m not sure how good ice can be at blocking explosions. That’s when I think Todoroki would use both his quirks to create an explosion of his own. We saw how big he could make one and it was much bigger than any of Bakugo’s we’ve seen so far.
Did you watch this episode? What did you think of it? Which fight have you liked most so far? Let me know in the comments!
